Bedrock Wine Co. Ode To Lucien 2013
|Brand||Bedrock Wine Co.|
Wine AdvocateAn homage to a Bandol-styled wine from the Domaine Tempier, the 2013 Proprietary Red Ode to Lucien comes from vineyards planted before 1900. Composed of 72% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache and 8% Syrah, this beauty offers up notes of sweet, briery black raspberry and black cherry fruit, earth, underbrush, pepper and barbecue spice, and a deep, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel. The Mourvèdre component is very ripe, but not overdone. The result is a complex, blue and black-fruited style of wine with plenty of body as well as sweet tannin. It should drink well for 7-10 years.
Wine SpectatorA dark and brooding blend, with smoldering aromas of blackberry, smoky herb and licorice and deep flavors of dried cherry, bitter chocolate and rustic underbrush. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2017 through 2026. 150 cases made.
